Any metal fans here?

In Battle there is no law as they say. So any other metal fans on board? Whether old school or new.

I'm a huge fan of the cheesy euro power metal (blind guardian, hammerfall, paragon, rhapsody etc) as well as death metal (bolt thrower, god dethroned, immolation and a bunch more). Throw in some new wave of british heavy metal, a bit of thrash, some folk metal nad just about anything other than black metal.
You may wonder if old or new 40K is better.

Did Bolt Thrower write about Rogue Trader or 7th edition?

Re: Any metal fans here?

I love alot of Metal/Rock, top of the lists are Sabaton, Black Sabbeth, G n' R but my main love in music is Horrorcore.

Definition from Wiki (Which isn't right, it's more a Hybrid of Metal/Rap but harder then Nu Metal)

Horrorcore defines a style of hip hop music that focuses primarily around horror-influenced topics that can include satanism, self-harm, cannibalism, suicide, murder, torture, rape and supernatural themes. The lyrics are often inspired by horror movies over moody, hardcore beats. According to rapper Mars, "If you take Stephen King or Wes Craven and you throw them on a rap beat, that's who I am."

Horrorcore was described by Entertainment Weekly in 1995 as a "blend of hardcore rap and bloodthirsty metal."The lyrical content of horrorcore is sometimes described as being similar to that of death metal, and some have referred to the genre as death rap. Horrorcore artists often feature dark imagery in their music videos and base musical elements of songs upon horror film scores.

(KGP, is seen as the Godfather of Horrorcore)

Raises head.

Although I love a lot of different musics amongst which romantic piano (Chopin, Rachmaninoff) I have to say metal still makes me chill. Fave bands would be Cryptopsy, Aborted, obviously Cannibal Corpse (seen them about 6-7 times live) Deicide and Morbid Angel but there are so many more (anything from Black Sabbath an NWOBHM to modern grind/death). With time and maturity I quite fancy the compromise offered by Opeth now for example.

Apart from that it'd be easier to count what I do not like than what I do.

Major kudos for Sabaton and I love some old school Morbid Angel. Something about that kind of "slow" old school Death Metal just does it for me every time.

Oh and I should have precised that metal is just like the hobby for me, I started with RT and WHFB3rd and I was listening to loads of Iron Maiden, Megadeth and Metallica and this combo has never left me. I do not believe it will ever do so.

Re: Any metal fans here?

I had the obligatory metal phase in the 90's/00's and still listen to some metal, although I'm not really up to date with new stuff. There's still some old stuff in the playlist, like Maiden, Metallica, Kittie, Rammstein. Think the newest stuff I listen to is Dethklok, and that's not even a real band :mrgreen:

My music taste nowadays is mostly Japanese though, and I listen to quite a bit of Visual Kei/J-Rock that could be considered metal, Versailles, Moi Dix Moi, X-Japan, Jupiter, 9mm Parabellum Bullet, Sex machine Guns

Sometimes we find what we like and it stays for life. It's really hard to go wrong with those three :) Throw in some Judas Priest and maybe some Diamond Head and it's a good 'un.

Re: Any metal fans here?

I like me a bit of metal, I do... but as I type this I'm listening to Mos Def so I suppose I'm not a metal fan as such. =)

I do like Bolt Thrower, but prefer Bathory or Entombed. Also like King Diamond A LOT, as well as Metallica or stuff like Danzig and Mustasch. From time to time I enjoy listening to crap like Helix, Madam-X or WASP too just because it's so outlandish and silly.

A few of my favourite songs:

Entombed - Out of hand
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56NfNEQlumg

Bathory - A fine day to die (horrible quality on this one, there are better quality reissues on Spotify)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyYnstGB3rM

King Diamond - At the graves
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODtIbv_oN2k

Finally, pimping a mate of mine who used to have a pretty damn good band but they decided to go for conventional carreers instead in the end. Pity. Their two albums are on Spotify though. Well worth a listen if you enjoy Sabbath, Mustasch or Kyuss for example.
Blind Dog - Don't ask me where I stand

When painting I mostly hear those 80s Metal. Bands like Saxon, Helloween, Blind Guardian... Sometimes also the newer ones like Sabaton, U.D.O. or Axel Rudi Pell.

No shame about Mos Def Phreedh, I like him a lot too and his presence in H2G2 is a sign of good taste actually.
